Perrucci - organ
Peppe Consolmagno -
Elizabethan England is surely one of the most fascinating periods of the
European cultural history.
time of Shakespearian and Marlowe theatre, but also of incredible music
such as that those put together in the “Fitzwilliam virginial book”
that contains also operas by Gibbons, Byrd, Farnaby, Bull.
music of great charm and character, these types of compositions are
characterized by refined contrapuntist material and at the same time by
an extraordinary melodic vitality, particularly shown in compositions
based on popular themes.
idea of the concert is to combine the rigour of the musical scriptures
of the so called “ English Virginilists “ with the spontaneity and extemporariness
typical of the Elizabethan theatre, inspired by William kemp, actor,
clown, musician and dancer of the most important Shakespearian operas.
accomplish this difficult balance the idea has been to look not just to
the philological recovery of the probable timbrical combinations of that
time, but rather the experimental sounds of Peppe Consolmagno that
intervene freely with his ethnical instruments thanks to his
musicological research done in South America, Africa, and Asia, and with
to read musician biographies
for informative material.
